    Ok, so the last one is just a dream.....still driving my 22yo truck, living off-grid, and shave with a single blade. Possessions are irrelevant. Time and impact on others are the truly valuable commodities.

    Law student (yes I have been warned sufficiently about pitfalls but I got a full ride so I decided to go for it) hoping to go into patent law. Chem engineering & biochemistry background with some biotech research thrown in. Also worked in fashion (for example Marie Claire's hq and talking as style expert on E! News etc).

    A whole world of difference going from engineering to research labs to fashion world back to law school.

    I might change again in a few years. Thankfully i am not gonna be in too much debt so going to free to switch if I don't like it after 2ish years.
